    All skills universe members are affected by changes in the Skills Development landscape and the National Skills Development Strategy. Therefore everyone appreciates the chance of making comment on any changes proposed by DHET.

    Everyone also has a Constitutional right to fair administrative action, which is given effect by the Promotion of Administrative Justice Act (PAJA). That provides a legal obligation on State departments to seek that comment.

    Why then would DHET publish a government gazette on the 15th December, which is traditionally the last day of work for many to start their annual holiday on the Public Holiday of the 16th December?

    Does that constitute fair administrative action? To publish a document for comment, when most of the time available is over the holidays?

    At a minimum, to constitute fair administrative action, the comment time period should be extended to the end of February 2018.

    To make comment easier, Skills-universe has uploaded and saved the two key documents in the Downloads section – as they are very large documents and too large to attach to Discussion Group discussions (See the right-hand side of the Home page for Downloads links).

    Lynel, who administers the Concerned Providers Interest Group has also requested comments for integration into their document they are preparing. Please take this chance to exercise your Constitutional right of comment on changes, which will inevitably affect your working life.

    The discussiion is available on the following link:

    Thank you so much Sylvia. I agree, the timing of the gazette was done, when most of the stakeholders/industry/providers took time off, to spend with their loved ones. Time is crucial. If we don’t submit concerns, comments or give input, then we cannot complain. We need to come together and submit input before the deadline date! Thank you once again

    Dear Lynel, co-incidentally as I was reading your posting on “we need to come together” on the radio Katherine Jenkins was playing A World in Union.
    These are the words:
    “World In Union”

    There’s a dream, I feel
    So rare, so real
    All the world in union
    The world as one

    Gathering together
    One mind, one heart
    Every creed, every color
    Once joined, never apart

    Searching for the best in me
    I will find what I can be
    If I win, lose or draw
    It’s a victory for all

    It’s the world in union
    The world as one
    As we climb to reach our destiny
    A new age has begun

    We may face high mountains
    Must cross rough seas
    We must take our place in history
    And live with dignity

    Just to be the best I can
    That’s the goal for every man
    If I win, lose or draw
    It’s a victory for all

    It’s the world in union
    The world as one
    As we climb to reach our destiny
    A new age has begun

    If we win, lose or draw
    It’s a victory for all

    It’s the world in union
    The world as one
    As we climb to reach our destiny
    A new age has begun

    It’s the world in union
    The world as one
    As we climb to reach our destiny
    A new age has begun
